Regulatory compliance is a moving target. And a difficult one to score consecutively. Laws in different countries, regions and relating practices will constantly play a role in affecting data privacy or E-Disclosure activities. You can’t just delete data as a result of a Data Subject Access Request (DSAR) if it’s under a legal hold, right?
Organisations need to think about using everything at their disposal to future proof practices and create an ability to respond very quickly, accurately and defensibly to the changing regulatory landscape. When it comes to a technology solution for the future, Dr. Don Macfarlane, Partner at SBP Law, feels that the right one will pay dividends for you for years to come.
Macfarlane’s response highlights the importance of technology in a changing landscape, including the need for a platform that might answer problems that don’t exist yet. Another great way to get ahead of the changing regulatory landscape is to develop and maintain your data inventory, which many companies are still behind on.
